Great Pacific Garbage Patch becomes a giant ‘floating plastic habitat’

A huge patch of rubbish in the Pacific Ocean is now “a huge plastic floating habitat” for marine animals clinging to its plastic debris, researchers have found.

Coastal plant and animal species that have been transported to sea on plastic debris don’t just survive in an area of ​​the ocean called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. They build communities and thrive, according to a study recently published in Nature Communications.
